Swiss Synthesizer Museum LP Unconditional Countour

The Unconditional Contours album which I made in a residency at the SMEM Swiss Museum for Electronic Isntruments in Fribourg last year  is going to be released for the general public around 2 october. This LP was released last year November already for backers of the museum crowdfunding plan but will now be available in the recordstores.  

Anyways…The SMEM has an amazing collection of more then 5000 synths, keyboards, organs, drummachines, fx machines and more…ranging from a 1930s NOVACHORD to an ELKA Synthex and everything in between. The cool thing is that you can book a date in their playroom and play/record/freak with a selection of the collection yourself. For more information on visiting the collection and booking the playroom check out their website
